Issue: Display errors using GLUT under Ubuntu 64bit
I wasn’t sure if this should go into the GLUT section or the Linux section…
So… I’ve been doing glut programming here and there on Windows / Fedora and yet to have a problem… but I can’t seem to get it to cooperate under Ubuntu 64 bit… Although I’m not entirely sure whether it’s GLUT or X11.
All of which are ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, stripped.
And all the headers that came with them. Trying to run a simple app that creates a black window (that works on Windows / Fedora) seems to try to create something… an item appears in the bottom panel and I can select “move”, but the window is never visible.
When I compile / execute this:
App straight out of the gl red book online, I get the following error:
freeglut (./sampleApp): ERROR: Internal error <Visual with necessary capabilities not found> in function fgOpenWindow X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) Major opcode of failed request: 4 (X_DestroyWindow) Resource id in failed request: 0x0 Serial number of failed request: 31 Current serial number in output stream: 34
Again, this code compiles and executes fine in Windows / Fedora, so I’m not sure what the issue is… anyone else run into this?
